We've invited 2 of the top hurricane and storm surge experts in the world to join us on Weather Geeks this Sunday. I like the way Executive Producer and Meteorologist Mike Chesterfield characterizes the guests. He writes:
"Jamie Rhome: Storm Surge Specialist At the NHC /Team Lead Of the Storm Surge Unit At the National Hurricane Center (NHC)
When it comes to surge Jamie is THE guy.....Jamie Rhome worked on the development of the prototype Storm Surge Watch/Warning graphic (being introduced this year) and the storm surge inundation mapping (continues experimentally for a second year this season). Although storm surge has always been a concern along our coastline and to NOAA/NWS, the attention brought by Sandy's flooding gave us the boost to accomplish more and in less time, as evident by these new products.
Michael Lowry: Hurricane Specialist and Storm Surge Expert at The Weather Channel
Michael Lowry - Prior to his time at The Weather Channel, Michael spent time working at the NHC and worked directly with Jamie and his team helping in the development of some of the new surge product."
This show promises to live up to WxGeeks' standards: solid guests, amazing graphics, and something you may not have known before the show.
Please join us Sunday at Noon ET (11 CT, 10 MT, 9 PT)..
Also future episodes in August feature the amazing weather photography of storm chaser Roger Hill (August 9th) and a look inside FEMA's Hurricane Program with Rebecca Jennings as we continue towards the peak of the Atlantic basin hurricane season.
